We are pleased to have a very special guest, author E. Dolores Johnson reading selections from SAY I’M DEAD: A Family Memoir of Race, Secrets and Love.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Dolores was born in Buffalo, NY. She earned degrees from Howard University and Harvard Graduate School of Business. After a career in tech, she took an MFA equivalent course to learn creative writing. Johnson is a published essayist focused on inter-racialism.

Johnson lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts. To learn more about her and her work, follow her on Twitter @elladolo and Instagram at @edoloresjohnson.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Say I’m Dead is a multi-generational memoir that reveals America’s changing attitudes toward race mixing, discovered through the courageous journeys of her family’s women.

“I was a black woman according to my family, society’s one-drop rule and my birth certificate. It was culturally and legally ridiculous to wonder if I wasn’t. Yet my biological ancestry counted for absolutely nothing. My beloved mother was white.”

This book is available for order through our online store.

We will provide a Zoom link to those who wish to participate– register through the ticket link above. After you have registered for this event, you will receive an email with details on how to join us via Zoom.

The event is finished.
